§ Order of the Day for the House to be put into Committee read.
§ 4.33 p.m.
THE EARL OF DONOUGHMORE
My Lords, in moving that the House resolve itself into Committee on this Bill I should like to thank the noble and learned Lord the Lord Chancellor for the courtesy he has shown me in regard to it. I wish also to ask him whether he can give some hope that facilities will be afforded in another place so that the Bill may be passed into law at the earliest possible moment.
§ Moved, That the House do now resolve itself into Committee.—(The Earl of Donoughmore.)
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR (LORD MAUGHAM)
My Lords, as I have already said, this Bill has the warm approval of His Majesty's Government. I have caused inquiries to be made as to what hopes there are in regard to the passage of the Bill through another place, and as a result it seems that it would be illusory to promise anything before the Recess, but I can assure the noble Earl that there is every reason to expect that as soon as possible after the Recess, such facilities will be given as will enable this Bill to be passed into law.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
§ House in Committee accordingly: Bill reported without amendment.
